25-Motif Challenge - Tatted Edging with Josephine Knots

This edging is from one of the Creative Hands books that I got at the thrift store last week. It's very simple; the rings are 4-4-4-4 and the chains are 4 ds, a Josephine knot of 9 stitches, another 4 ds, and then another ring, joined to the first ring at the first picot.

This was needle-tatted in #20 generic chain-store cotton thread; I think it would look better in something a bit larger. I'll have to try it in #10 (five brand new, still in plastic-wrap balls of which I picked up at the Sally Ann's on Monday, along with two 1940's headscarves. I love Sally Ann. I get all my tatting thread there and at the hospital thrift shop. Who needs Hobby Lobby?).
